Service engine light stays changed gas cap done smoke test replaced oxygen sensor


Code 449 is for a defective vent valve solenoid. The engine computer can not open or close the valve or can not tell if the valve is operating.
The valve/solenoid would need to be tested and you will probably need a shop manual to get the testing procedure.

Heater won't turn on even with a good HSI


Remove at least one of the wires going to that solenoid on the gas valve. Check for continuity between the 2 legs of the solenoid. If you cannot get a reading then you have a bad valve. If you indeed do have continuity start the furnace and see if voltage is going to the valve. If you have no voltage going to the valve then you could have a bad board. If voltage is going to the valve then the gas valve has failed internally or you ain't paid the gas bill. LOL.

My Syncrowave 250 has no argon flow . Everything else works.


Remove the gas flow solenoid valve, bench test or have it tested and or replace. Follow the gas line to machine .This should be your gas solenoid If solenoid works fine, there must be a wire broken going it to itbut most likely tthe solenoid is bad.

Just a first thought on this one. I had a fault on a new unit where dust had got in to the gas supply and completly stuffed up the modulating adjustment. Took me an hour to figure it out and about 3 hours to strip the gas valve down and clear it out. Problem is the Rinnai has a large micron steel gauze on the gas line filter in the bottom of the gas valve and lets small debris through. If you have had any work done on your gas line recently just keep this one in the back of your mind.

The modulating solenoid is the large one on the front of the gas valve, next to the circuit board, the pin connecting it can go either way around.
If you are good with electrics you can check the resistance across the solenoid. UNPLUG THE POWER SUPPLY BEFORE OPENING THE FRONT CASE. Take the white lead plug off the solenoid and put a ohms reading acroos the two terminals. Hopfully you should have a little plastic sleeve attached to the inside of the front panel with a single A4 data sheet. On one side of this should be a list of the test points and what reading to expect. Check this if you have it but as a guide 60-100 ohms is what you are looking for.

As far as what might be wrong my hunch would be either PCB or the valve itself, Rinnai solenoid valves are normally really good so I would go with a PCB if I needed to try something. Dont try adjusting or replacing the gas valve unless you digital gas pressure testing equipment as the settings are crucial to the safe operation of the heater.

Hello there:
Here is some helpful advice for you to check out first ok
Hope that al of this is very helpful for you
Best regards Richard

Most likely your gas valve has a defective solenoid. You can verify this by visually looking at the glow coils operation.
The first click you hear will ignite the glow coil. If the glow coil does glow a very bright yellow white color, that solenoid is working. If the glow coil fails to light, replace that part only. <Use caution-glow coils are not cheap and break easily.>

If the coil glows but you do not hear the second click, which opens the second gas valve to allow the gas to exit to the burner, you will need to remove the gas valve assembly and replace both solenoids.

The solenoids are located on the top of the gas valve and are black plastic coated spool looking items. They are held in place by a retaining plate.

Carefully, remove and replace them with the new ones. <They only fit on the steel rod one way.> Replace the gas valve assembly, attach the quick disconnect wire clips and soap test the gasline nut you unconnected.

If the soap test proves there isn't any gas leaks, fire up the dryer and your done.

Glow coil's cost about $50.00.
Pair of solenoids slightly less.

DRYER DOSEN,T HEAT


First, check the ignitor and see if it is working. It should glow visibly if it is working. If the ignitor is working, but the burner won't light, the most likely cause are the gas valve coils. These electrical coils are located right above the gas valves. When energized, these solenoids open the gas valves and permit the burner to light. If defective, they don't permit the gas valves to open. Due to the difficulty in testing these solenoids, it is recommended that both (all) be replaced at once if any are suspected of being faulty. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Tumbling fine no hot air. is a gas dryer


First, check that the ignitor is working properly. It should glow visibly if it is working. If the ignitor seems to be functioning properly, then I would suspect the gas valve coils. These electrical coils are right above the gas valves and when these solenoids are energized they open the gas valves and permit the burner to light. If they are faulty, the gas valves don't open so no gas gets to the burner. Due to the difficulty in testing these solenoids, it is recommended that both (all) be replaced at the same time if any are suspected of being faulty. Hope this helps and best wishes.

Glow plug lights but does not fire gas everything


This is most likely faulty gas valve coils. These electrical coils are located just above the gas valves and when energized, these solenoids open the gas valves and permit the burner to light. If faulty, the gas valves cannot open and the burner cannot light. Due to the difficulty in testing these solenoids, it is recommended that both (all) be replaced at once if any are suspected of being faulty. Hope this helped and best wishes.

GAS DRYER, THE IGNITER GETS RED HOT BUT THE GAS DOES NOT COME OUT AND FIRE UP


This is most likely faulty gas valve coils. These coils are located right above the gas valves. These solenoids, when energized, turn on the gas valves. If any of the solenoids are defective, the gas valves aren't turned on and the burner cannot light. Due to the difficulty in testing these solenoids, if they are suspected of being faulty, it is recommended that both (all) of them be replaced at the same time. Hope this helped and best wishes.

My dryer doesnt get hot


With gas bills so outrageously high these days, you deserve a medal for being able to keep current! lol Let's see what we can do about the dryer. First, check that the ignitor is working. It should glow an orange color if it is working. If the ignitor seems to be working properly, then I would suspect faulty gas valve coils. These are solenoids located directly above the gas valves, that when energized, open the valves and permit gas to flow to the burner. If the solenoids are faulty, the gas valves won't open and the burner cannot light. Due to the difficulty in testing these solenoids, it is best to replace both (all) of them at once if any are suspected of being faulty. Hope this helped and best wishes.
